Frank Paul was a “knob”, according to a police arrest report made earlier on the day before his body was found in a Vancouver alley, the Frank Paul Inquiry heard Monday. The Vancouver Police Dpartment wagon driver who transported Frank Paul to the jail said she didn’t know who wrote the word “knob” next to “H/SIPP”, shorthand for “Hold/State of Intoxication in a Public Place”.

We expressed concern about the state of document disclosure by the VPD, which has provided copies of handwritten notebook entries from just two of the twelve police officers scheduled to testify in Phase 1. The VPD has failed to disclose the CPIC printout for inquiries about Mr. Paul, and failed to deliver any records of radio transmissions between police officers around December 6, 1998, the date he was found dead in a Vancouver alley.

The Inquiry continues.
